Does anyone's hospital use the EPIC system for charting?
Our hospital is going to this system this month, and I am really interested in how other nurses feel about it. For me, it is very difficult to learn, and I feel like I will be spending more time on the computer than with my patients.
We keep hearing how much easier it will be, but right now, it doesn't seem easy at all.
I am used to hard copies of charts, and the system we use now in the computer for charting allows for a busy night where I may not look at a computer until the end of my shift. And finding things in the EPIC system is very complicated for me.
Anyone out there that can ease my anxiety?
